Project overview



On 6 June 2017, ARTC applied to the ACCC to vary its 2011 Hunter Valley Access Undertaking. The variation seeks to change a number of provisions in the undertaking, including:

  • rate of return
  • remaining mine life
  • the term of the undertaking (to 31 December 2021).

On 6 June 2017, the ACCC sent a letter to industry seeking comments on ARTC's proposal. Submissions were due by 20 June 2017.

On 16 June 2017, ARTC submitted a revised variation application incorporating finalised access charges.

On 29 June 2017, the ACCC consented to ARTC's revised variation application.
